VASER® LipoSelection NYC FAQs

Is VASER® LipoSelection a surgical procedure?

VASER® LipoSelection is a minimally-invasive fat removal technique that uses a revolutionary ultrasound technology to gently reshape the body. As a minimally invasive procedure to traditional liposuction, it can be used to selectively remove fat from resistant areas, including the abdomen, buttocks, and hips. Our Doctor in NYC integrates cutting-edge technologies such as VASER LipoSelection into his everyday practice.

What kind of anesthesia is required for VASER® LipoSelection treatment?

Because it is minimally-invasive, VASER LipoSelection requires only a local anesthesia. Before the procedure begins, a saline solution is injected into the treatment area, numbing and swelling it. Next ultrasound energy is transmitted, which dissolves fat cells. Finally, the dislodged fat is gently suctioned out. Patients generally feel little discomfort during a VASER® session.

What is the benefit VASER® of using ultrasound technology for fat removal?

VASER® LipoSelection is safe and precise, allowing our doctor to optimize the treatment. Its ultrasound technology can differentiate fat cells from surrounding tissues. During the procedure, energy is emitted that hones in on fat cells. As a consequence, fatty tissue is broken up, while other types of tissues are spared. Not only does this targeted approach ensure the health of important tissues, it produces smoother results and minimizes healing time.

Can I exercise immediately after treatment?

No, it is recommended that patients refrain from strenuous exercise for the first week following treatment. Because the procedure is non-surgical, downtime is minimal and most patients are back in the swing of their daily activities within 48 hours.

When will I see results?

The time it takes to see visible results can vary from patient to patient, influenced by the amount of fat removed and the number of areas treated. Although some may see improvement soon after the procedure, most patients see the final results 3-4 months after treatment.

Why does it take time to see results after a VASER® treatment?

When fat is removed, it leaves empty channels, which tend to fill with fluid. A special compression garment, which is placed on the treated area, helps to limit the fluid accumulation (swelling) in the empty areas, but the body needs time to adjust. As healing progresses, fluid is reabsorbed into the body and fluid retention becomes less of a problem. At that point, patients can begin to see more complete results.
